The Shakespeare Playground - As You Like It
“All the world’s a stage…” Join us in the magical Forest of Arden to explore one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies, complete with dueling dukes, plucky princesses, brawling brothers, clever clowns, funny farmers—and even a professional wrestler, a snake, and a lion! Using props, costumes, music, improvisation, theatre games, and stage fighting techniques, we’ll rehearse for a final ensemble performance of scenes from AS YOU LIKE IT. No previous experience necessary. Come dressed to move and pack a lunch.
The Shakespeare Playground™ is directed and developed by professional actor/director/educator and hatha yoga teacher Renée Bucciarelli. An acclaimed, highly kinetic arts and literacy program, The Shakespeare Playground has delighted and inspired kids across North America for two decades. More info at
